balance



these are some really cool art nouveau tiles that were on sale on ebay!  i love the colors!  i want to try and paint something like it.  next weekend i'm going to the vance kirkland museum for art nouveau class.  our teacher said it's a hidden treasure, with a great collection of art nouveau stuff.  i have to write a paper this weekend for that class too, my head has been too stuffy for it this week.


another doodle from class.  kiko said, that's my head.  

i'm trying to find a balance between knowing what is going on in the world and not feeling a lot of stress about it.  i had to pay that stupid $190 ticket and the post office lost my health insurance bill and i hadn't realized it so i had to pay near $800.  that's a thousand dollars in the drop of a hat.  plus i've been listening to npr's planet money.  it's great and makes all this craziness easy to understand but it's not looking good people.  it's pretty much all bad news.  so should i not listen and just live in blissful ignorance, since in reality my business is doing well, kiko's doing well.  i don't know. . . . 

but i watched a great frontline on pbs about how we got into this mess.  it was very informative.  
i think i'm going to buy some back episodes of this american life.  i did that already this week but i listened to them all already.  this weeks one was so great!  you have to listen to it.  somewhere out there.
